The benefits of
the true religion are numerous. The person who has no religion or has chosen a
wrong religion is the biggest loser. Nothing can compensate this loss.
find many disbelievers around us who have wealth, power, and property. Many people
think that they are the most fortunate people in the world. But there were many
people like them in the past who are now dead. Every person knows without any
doubt that they have left all their wealth, power and honour which they were enjoying
during their lifetime. So death is the end of every material and worldly thing.
Holy Quran has revealed this truth in the following verses.
many gardens, how many fountains they left behind them; and cornfields, and noble
palaces, and good things in which they took delight. Thus (it was ), and we made
other people inherit all that. Neither heaven nor earth shed tears for them, nor
were they reprieved. (44:25-29)
believers : Shall I command you to a bargain that will save you from a miserable
infliction ? Have faith in Allah and His apostle and that you strive to your utmost
in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your persons, that will be the best
for you, if you but knew it. He will forgive you your sins and admit you to gardens
watered by running streams. He will lodge you in pleasant mansions in gardens
of eternity; that is indeed the supreme achievement. (61:10-12)
holy Quran has repeatedly warned us that every thing which we possess in this
world will be left behind. The intelligent people are those who purchase the prosperity
that can remain with them even after their death. A man of understanding, even
if he is not Muslim,can perceive it.
(1712-1778), a great French philosopher and most important writer of the Age of
Reason, has given some words of wisdom, when he wrote to his son about the reality
of this worldly life:
I know that I am destined
to die; then, should I create attachment for myself in this world ? In a world
where all things are changing and passing, I myself will soon become nonexistent.Of
what use to me are attachments? Emile, my son, if I lose you, what will be left
for me? I must nonetheless prepare myself for such an intolerable eventuality,
because no one can assure me that I will die before you. So if you wish to live
appily and rationally,attach your heart only to beauties that are imperishable;
try to limit your desires and hold duty in higher esteem than all else. Seek only
those things that do not violate the law of morality, and accustom yourself to
losing things without distress. Accept nothing, unless your conscience permits
you. If you do all of this, you will surely be happy, and not become over attached
to anything on earth.
Rousseau was not a Muslim
but was inspired by Islamic philosophy. A man of this thinking can command his
people to bring revolution. Rousseaus philosophy motivated the people of
his time that led to the French Revolution.
